Spiderlings of Pamphobeteus sp. “costa” reached the the US in 2014, with sellers promoting coloration of P. sp. “costa” females. Last year we offered second generation, captive-bred P. sp. “costa.” At this time we offer a molt-sexed, juvenile female.

Most Pamphobeteus are from the uplands of the northwest Andes in South America. P. sp. “costa” is from Ecuadorian coastal slopes, specifically Ecuador’s coastal province of Manabi (costa, Spanish, coast). Manabi has many different climates, although dry climate predominates, specifically tropical savanna (Köppen class Aw).

Spiderlings are robust-appearing and have hearty appetites. Spiderlings and juveniles bear the abdominal Xmas tree pattern seen on many other Pamphobeteus species, including P. sp. “platyomma” and P. sp. “insignis.”
